Urticaria or Nettle - rash is a skin affection characterized by prominently and perfectly smooth patches upon the skin.
White or red wheals with the sensation of burning and itching, sudden eruption, sudden disappearance, usually with out desquamation.
There are two forms, acute and a chronic form.
The acute form manifests itself as Febrilis Urticaria by general malaise, frequent pulse and gastric symptoms, or it may set with out any general symptoms. The whole eruption may come out suddenly, or the wheals may appear in gradual or rapid succession, or they disappear from one place and appear in another. Wheals vary much in form, size and color, some have depression in the center, but each wheal is always surrounded by a red halo.
The more extensive the eruption, the severe the itching and burning will be.
Afebrile urticaria may exist for weeks and even months, constantly renewing itself at shorter or longer intervals on different regions of the body
